      My 17 year old daughter has the opportunity to visit Nakuru in Kenya with her college. While there she will spend time volunteering in a school and also visit some places of interest in the local area as part of a tour group. I would be interested to hear people's experiences of this area and in particular in regards to personal safety and vegetarian food. Many thanks.....

    • entrance fees

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Sep 22, 2014 at 4:01 PM

      Hi, We are going to the Masai Mara and would like to know if the 80 dollars for entrance fee have to be paid for each day that you are inside the park. If we drive to one of the Lodges inside the reserve and stay there for 4 days, do we pay 80 dollars times 4 at the entrance? don't the lodges include the entrance fees? what happens if later we want to stay longer? Do we also have to pay extra for driving a car?
      Thank you!!

      Access to the park?

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Aug 25, 2014 at 2:04 AM

      Hi, I am currently working on a project in the Masai Mara area, but would really like to see the animals in the park. Is it possible to just arrange transportation to the park, pay entrance fee and arrange a game drive there? Most safaripackages are very expensive and include daylong drives to Nairobi. Is there a way to avoid this, but just arrive there?

I heard that they have issues with baggage storage in the Safarilink flight. Does anyone know the flight can take in a normal soft top Delsy Suitcase ? Or are we supposed to carry only small bags ? Some guidance will help. Thanks

    • Lake Bogoria water levels

      Lake Bogoria May 11, 2014 at 4:46 AM


      My partner and I are planning a trip where we'll be spending a few days in Kenya at the tail end of it. We thought of going on a tour to Lake Nakuru and Bogoria but have read so many stories about rising water levels and flooding. Does anyone have information to offer as to whether or not a tour to these places are still possible? Admittedly things could get a lot worse between now and June, when we're traveling, but also imagine tourism is a vital source of income for these communities and so would still like to go if this still seems reasonable.

      If it seems like a poor idea, are there any other attractions that you'd recommend for a tour over a couple of days

    • Game drive costs

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Mar 15, 2014 at 3:00 PM

      What is the typical cost to do a game drive? Can you request a time? When is the best time to do game drives? From my research it appears morning and late afternoon may be best. My preference is obviously to see what I can and to organize my time that makes the most sense. I will be traveling in mid July 2014. In advance, thank you!

      Masai Mara Game Reserve Jul 18, 2013 at 1:41 AM

      Our itinerary currently consists of 4 days in the Masai Mara. I have come across some mixed reviews about Lake Nakuru. I also read somewhere that there aren't that many flamingoes any longer in Lake Nakuru. Do you think it's worth the drive (5 hours from Masai Mara) to spend one day there? Should we stay at the Masai Mara one more day or take that trip to Lake Nakuru? Or do you have any other suggestions for what we could do for that one day?

      I'm trying to plan a safari for my honeymoon in November, but I keep reading conflicting information. Would I be better off visiting Masai Mara or the Serengeti in mid November? Is this heavy rain season for either of these regions and what would be our chances of actually spotting game during this time? We are interested in seeing the big 5, of course, as well as other wildlife if possible. Any tour recommendations and/or camps/lodges suggestions would be of great help. I've been looking at Kensignton Tours...has anyone ever toured with them?
